Henry's Tacos Petition Nears 6,000 Names and Remains Open For Now

Shop owner Janis Hood said the taco stand is working out a deal with property owners.

A petition intended to persuade the Los Angeles City Council to grant landmark status to Henry's Tacos in Studio City is 265 supporters shy of getting 6,000 paper and online signatures. In addition, the matter was recently referred to the Planning and Land Use Committee (PLUM) for further consideration.

Meanwhile, the owner of the historic taco stand and the property owner are working out an ongoing deal. Studio City Patch will have the latest when the plan is finalized, but for now, the operation is continuing as usual.

Of course Henry's should stay. Do we need another smoke shop or foot massage. The corners are already starting to look really trashy.

Sad day when residents in a neighborhood with mostly million $ + homes think an overpriced and smelly taco stand should be the gateway to Studio City. Perhaps you should take the one-time tax free gain, sell your homes, and move to Sun Valley, El Monte or other neighborhoods brimming with taco stands. I enjoy Mexican food and can eat for the same price and get better quality at many places.

I always drive by Henry's, but have never stopped. There's always a line and I think it's time I find out whyyyyy. I'm always down for tacos :)

lol-- Gringo Tacos. Next it will be historically significant "Roach Coaches."

Let the private sector work it out. Government shouldn't hickjack the property owner's rights under the guise of historic landmark. If the taco stand owner wants to make it a historic landmark then buy the property and make it a historic landmark.

Be careful what you wish for.

I'm sure he would, except the wealthy Iranian who owns this property as well as large swaths of land all around L.A. refuses to sell.

So now wealthy Iranians who own swaths of land are called out for not selling? Better yet, lets have the City force the three times closed restaurant at Bakman & Moorpark to become a free clinic. Hope a wealthy Iranian doesn't own that either.

henry's should become a historical landmark on architecture. where else do you see this kind of work anymore? it shows that buildings don't have to be cookie-cutter corporate...which reminds us that our lives and our minds don't have to be like that either! the tacos there are still tasty and very popular. it's not just nostalgia, but actual architectural history. please sign the petition and call the l.a. city council to voice your opinion. as one commenter stated what would they put on that small corner that would really make a difference anyway? it's a colorful, historic, quaint, cultural landmark that still is popular among diners. save henry's tacos!!!!!!!!

we need a Henry's-a-thon: continuous eating and shitting from tomorrow on as a show of support and protest. from local suburban bathrooms, littered with Henry's bags and soft shelled tacos, all should be skyped and tweeted (tooted?) facebooked and pinterested to condemn the lazy douche bag GenX shit wads who now inhabit the Village who clearly have no regard for the original purveyor of our favorite non nutritive food stuffs that caused my generation to grow up angry and stupid. how can this be happening???? who cares about the financial cliff? this is gastronomicide!!! get ready Moorpark and Tujunga for a series of idiotic food stands: Tofu Junction. The Potato Prepper. The Gumbo Gobbler. Hayseedic Juice! you will all fail. you will never rid that location of the fat and chemicals that is the foundation of my youth. rise in protest. I gotta work
